The Lincoln Theatre
This is a story of an original vaudeville and movie house that rose like a phoenix to become a restored beauty in downtown Marion. In early years the old stage hosted famous performers such as Roy Rogers and Flatt & Scruggs. Visitors to The Lincoln Theatre are immediately surprised by the intricate interior decor and its meticulous restoration. Today, the most visible program is The Lincoln Theatre's bluegrass concert series, Song of the Mountains. This series features local, regional, and national artists in the bluegrass, old time, and Celtic music traditions. Patrons who attend performances are treated to high-quality shows in varied genre, from bluegrass and old-time to jazz and classical music.
